PLANNING THE INSTALLATION
WARNING
Fire or Explosion Hazard.
Can cause property damage, severe injury,
or death.
Follow these warnings exactly:
1. Plan the installation as outlined below.
2. Plan for frequent maintenance as described in
the Maintenance section.
kits include one flange, one O-ring and four
mounting screws.
b Do not use flanges on control models with 3/4 in. inlet
and 3/4 in. outlet. On models with 1/2 in. inlet and
3/4 in. outlet, use flanges only on the 1/2 in. inlet side.
Heavy demands are made on the controls when
intermittent pilot systems are used on central heating
equipment in barns, greenhouses, and commercial
properties and on heating appliances such as
commercial cookers, agricultural equipment, industrial
heating equipment and pool heaters.
Special steps may be required to prevent nuisance
shutdowns and control failure due to frequent cycling,
severe environmental conditions related to moisture,
corrosive chemicals, dust or excessive heat. These
applications require Honeywell Home and Building
Control Engineering review; contact your Honeywell
Sales Representative for assistance.
Review the following conditions that can apply to your
specific installation and follow the precautions
suggested.
Frequent Cycling
This control is designed for use on appliances that
typically cycle three to four times an hour only during the
heating season. In year-around applications with greater
cycling rates, the control can wear out more quickly.
Perform a monthly checkout.
Water or Steam Cleaning
If a control gets wet, replace it. If the appliance is likely to
be cleaned with water or steam, protect (cover) the
control and wiring from water or steam flow. Mount the
control high enough above the bottom of the cabinet so it
does not get wet during normal cleaning procedures.
High Humidity or Dripping Water
Dripping water can cause the control to fail. Never install
an appliance where water can drip on the control. In
addition, high ambient humidity can cause the control to
corrode and fail. If the appliance is in a humid
atmosphere, make sure air circulation around the control
is adequate to prevent condensation. Also, regularly
check out the system.
3
69-1225—4
VR8104, VR8204 AND VR8304 INTERMITTENT PILOT COMBINATION GAS CONTROLS
Corrosive Chemicals
CAUTION
Corrosive chemicals can attack the control, eventually
causing a failure. If chemicals are used for routine
cleaning, avoid contact with the control. Where
chemicals are suspended in air, as in some industrial or
agricultural applications, protect the control with an
enclosure.
Dust or Grease Accumulation
Heavy accumulations of dust or grease can cause the
control to malfunction. Where dust or grease can be a
problem, provide covers for the control to limit
contamination.
Heat
Excessively high temperatures can damage the control.
Make sure the maximum ambient temperature at the
control does not exceed the rating of the control. If the
appliance operates at very high temperatures, use
insulation, shielding, and air circulation, as necessary, to
protect the control. Proper insulation or shielding should
be provided by the appliance manufacturer; verify proper
air circulation is maintained when the appliance is
installed.
Equipment Damage.
Can burn out valve coil terminals.
Never apply a jumper across (or short) the valve
coil terminals, even temporarily.
Follow the appliance manufacturers instructions if
available; otherwise, use these instructions as a guide.
IMPORTANT
These gas controls are shipped with protective
seals over the inlet and outlet tappings. Do not
remove the seals until ready to install adapters
or connect the piping.
Converting Gas Control from Natural Gas
to LP Gas (or LP Gas to Natural Gas)
WARNING
Fire Or Explosion Hazard.
Can cause property damage, severe injury
or death.
1. Do not attempt to convert step-opening models
(suffix letter P).
2. Always change the main and pilot burner
orifices when converting from natural to LP gas
or from LP to natural gas. Carefully follow
appliance manufacturer specifications and
instructions to assure proper appliance
conversion.
3. Gas controls are factory-set for natural (and
manufactured) or LP gas. Do not attempt to
use a gas control set for natural
(manufactured) gas on LP gas, or a gas control
set for LP gas on natural (manufactured) gas.

69-1225—4
Controls with standard, slow-opening, and two-stage
regulators (model numbers with suffix H, K, M, or Q) can
be converted from one gas to the other with a conversion
kit (ordered separately). See Table 4 for the correct
conversion kit.
Convertible Pressure Regulators
Controls with suffix letter R are convertible pressure
regulator models. They can be converted from natural
gas to LP gas or from LP gas to natural gas without a
conversion kit.
Before converting the control from one gas to another,
check the control label and the appliance manufacturer’s
rating plate to determine if the pressure regulator setting
(factory set) will meet the appliance manifold
requirements after conversion.
NOTE: Convertible pressure regulator models (suffix
letter R) do not have field-adjustable regulators.
If the factory pressure regulator setting meets the
appliance manifold requirement, convert the control as
follows:
1. Remove the pressure regulator cap, Fig. 1.
2. Invert the cap so that the letters appear that
represent the gas type appropriate for the
appliance. NAT for natural manufactured gas, LP
for liquid petroleum gas.
3. Replace the cap and tighten firmly.

Location
The combination gas control is mounted in the appliance
vestibule on the gas manifold. If this is a replacement
application, mount the gas control in the same location
as the old control.
Locate the combination gas control where it cannot be
affected by steam cleaning, high humidity, or dripping
water, corrosive chemicals, dust or grease accumulation
or excessive heat. To assure proper operation, follow
these guidelines:
• Locate gas control in a well-ventilated area.
• Mount gas control high enough above cabinet bottom
to avoid exposure to flooding or splashing water.
• Assure the ambient temperature does not exceed the
ambient temperature ratings for each component.
• Cover gas control if appliance is cleaned with water,
steam, or chemicals or to avoid dust and grease
accumulation.
• Avoid locating gas control where exposure to
corrosive chemical fumes or dripping water are likely.

Cut tubing to the desired length and bend as
necessary for routing to the pilot burner. Do not
make sharp bends or deform the tubing. Do not
bend the tubing at the gas control after the
compression nut is tightened, because this can
result in gas leakage at the connection.
Square off and remove burrs from the end of the
tubing.
Unscrew the brass compression fitting from the
pilot outlet (Fig. 6). Slip the fitting over the tubing
and slide out of the way. See Fig. 7.
NOTE: When replacing a control, cut off the old
compression fitting and replace with the
compression fitting provided on the combination
gas control. Never use the old compression
fitting because it may not provide a gas-tight
seal.
4.
Install Control
1.
Apply a moderate amount of good quality pipe
compound (do not use Teflon tape) only to the
pipe, leaving two end threads bare. On LP
installations, use a compound resistant to LP gas.
See Fig. 4.
Remove the seals over the control inlet and outlet if
necessary.
Connect the pipe to the control inlet and outlet. Use
a wrench on the square ends of the control. If a
flange is used, place the wrench on the flange
rather than on the gas control. Refer to Fig. 5
and 6.
Mounted 0 to 90 degrees in any direction, including
vertically, from the upright position of the gas
control knob.
Mount so the gas flow is in the direction of the
arrow on the bottom of the control.
Thread the pipe the amount shown in Table 7 for
insertion into control or adapters. Do not thread
pipe too far. Valve distortion or malfunction can
result if the pipe is inserted too deeply.
5.
Push the tubing into the pilot gas tapping on the
outlet end of the control until it bottoms. While
holding the tubing all the way in, slide the fitting
into place and engage the threads; then turn until
finger tight. Tighten one more turn with a wrench,
but do not overtighten.
Connect the other end of the tubing to the pilot
burner according to the pilot burner manufacturer’s
instructions.

1. Do not force the gas control knob on the
appliance. Use only your hand to turn the gas
control knob. Never use any tools.
2. If the knob does not operate by hand, the
control should be replaced by a qualified
service technician.
Gas Control Knob Settings
Gas control knob settings are as follows:
OFF: Prevents pilot and main gas flow through the
control.
ON: Permits gas to flow into the control body. Under
control of the thermostat and intermittent pilot module,
gas can flow to the pilot and main burners.
The pilot flame should envelop 3/8 to 1/2 in. (10 to 13
mm) of the tip of the igniter-sensor. See Fig. 9. If the pilot
flame is small or lazy, the inlet gas pressure may be too
low, or the pilot orifice may be partially clogged. Check
and repair as necessary. If the pilot flame is hard and
noisy, the inlet gas pressure may be too high. The gas
control has a pilot adjustment mechanism to reduce the
pilot flow if necessary. If pilot adjustment is necessary,
proceed as follows:
1. Remove pilot adjustment cover screw. See Fig. 6.
2. The pilot adjustment is shipped at the full pilot gas
flow rate. Turn the inner adjustment screw
clockwise
if the inlet pressure is too high.
Turn the inner adjustment screw clockwise
to decrease or counterclockwise
to increase
pilot flame.
3. Replace the cover screw after the adjustment to
prevent gas leakage.

Gas Controls Handbook, and compare to Btuh
input rating on appliance nameplate.
3. IF CHECKING GAS INPUT WITH
MANOMETER: Make sure the gas control knob
is in the OFF position before removing outlet
pressure tap plug to connect manometer
(pressure gauge). Also move the gas control
knob to the OFF position when removing the
gauge and replacing the plug. Before removing
inlet pressure tap plug, shut off gas supply at
the manual valve in the gas piping to the
appliance or, for LP, at the tank. Also shut off
gas supply before disconnecting manometer
and replacing plug. Repeat Gas Leak Test at
plug with main burner operating.
NOTE: Check the inlet pressure before adjusting the
pressure regulator.

the necessary steps to provide proper gas
pressure to the control.
NOTE: If the burner firing rate is above 150,000 Btuh
on VR8304 models (see Table 1 for VR8304
capacities), it may not be possible to deliver the
desired outlet pressure. This is an application
issue, not a control failure. Take whatever steps
are required to correct the situation.
Step-Opening (P) Models
Step-opening models require that you check and adjust
the full-rate pressure first and then check the step
pressure. The step pressure is not field adjustable.
Carefully check the main burner lightoff. Make sure
that the main burner lights smoothly and that all
ports remain lit.
2. Check the full rate manifold pressure listed on the
appliance nameplate. Gas control full rate outlet

5. If the desired outlet pressure or flow rate cannot be
achieved by adjusting the gas control, check the
gas control inlet pressure using a manometer at
the inlet pressure tap of the control. If the inlet
pressure is in the nominal range (see Tables 8A
and 8B), replace the control. Otherwise, take the
necessary steps to provide proper gas pressure to
the control.
6. Carefully check the burner lightoff at step pressure.
Make sure the burner lights smoothly and without
flashback to the orifice. Make sure all ports remain
lit. Cycle the burner several times, allowing at least
60 seconds between cycles for the regulator to
resume the step function. Repeat after allowing the
burner to cool. Readjust the full rate outlet
pressure, if necessary, to improve lightoff
characteristics.

igniter either immediately or following prepurge.
See IP module specifications.
Time the length of the spark operation. See the IP
module specifications.
After the module locks out, open the manual gas
cock and make sure no gas is flowing to the pilot or
main burner. With modules that continue to spark
until the pilot lights or the system shuts down
manually, the pilot should light when the manual
gas control knob is opened.
Set the thermostat below room temperature and
wait one minute.

Non-Regulating On-Off (U) Models
Non-regulating VR8204U Valves are designed for
application in various parts of Europe where a separate,
distinct, pressure regulator is required. The VR8204U is
similar to the VR8204A in all other aspects and should be
installed accordingly.
MAINTENANCE
WARNING
Fire or Explosion Hazard.
Can cause property damage, severe injury,
or death.
Do not disassemble the gas control; it contains
no replaceable components. Attempted
disassembly, repair, or cleaning can damage the
control, resulting in gas leakage.
• Dusty, wet, or corrosive environments. Since these
environments can cause the gas control to deteriorate
more rapidly, the system should be checked more
often.
The system should be replaced if:
• It does not perform properly on checkout or
troubleshooting.
• The gas control is likely to have operated for more
than 200,000 cycles.
• The control is wet or looks as if it has been wet.
SERVICE
WARNING
Fire or Explosion Hazard.
Can cause property damage, severe injury
or death.
Do not disassemble the control; it contains no
replaceable components. Attempted
disassembly, repair, or cleaning can damage
the gas control, resulting in gas leakage.
Regular preventive maintenance is important for
applications in the commercial cooking and agricultural
and industrial industries that place a heavy load on
system controls because:
• In many such applications, particularly commercial
cooking, the equipment operates 100,000 to 200,000
cycles per year. Such heavy cycling can wear out the
gas control in one to two years.
• Exposure to water, dirt, chemicals and heat can
damage the gas control and shut down the control
system.
The maintenance program should include regular
checkout of the control as outlined in the Startup and
Checkout section, and the control system as described in
the appliance manufacturer literature.
Maintenance frequency must be determined individually
for each application. Some considerations are:
• Cycling frequency. Appliances that may cycle 20,000
times annually should be checked monthly.
• Intermittent use. Appliances that are used seasonally
should be checked before shutdown and again before
the next use.
• Consequence of unexpected shutdown. Where the
cost of an unexpected shutdown would be high, the
system should be checked more often.
CAUTION
Equipment Damage.
Can burn out valve coil terminals.
Never apply a jumper across (or short) the valve
coil terminals, even temporarily.
After servicing, verify proper system operation.

Using ac voltmeter, check for 24V at gas control:
• If pilot lights, measure across MV/PV and MV.
• If pilot does not light, measure across MV/PV
and PV before safety lockout occurs.
If voltage is incorrect or not present, check control
circuit for proper operation.
If 24V is present, replace gas control.

INSTRUCTIONS TO THE
HOMEOWNER
WARNING
Fire or Explosion Hazard.
Can cause property damage, severe injury,
or death.
Follow these warnings exactly:
1. Pilot flame is lit automatically. Do not light the
pilot flame manually.
2. Before lighting the pilot burner flame, smell
around the appliance for gas. Be sure to smell
next to the floor because LP gas is heavier
than air. If you smell gas:
• Turn off the gas supply at the appliance
service valve. On LP gas systems, turn off
the gas supply at the gas tank.
• Do not light any appliances in the house.
• Do not touch electrical switches or use the
phone.
• Leave the building and use a neighbor’s
phone to call your gas supplier.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call
the fire department.
3. Replace the gas control in the event of any
physical damage, tampering, bent terminals,
missing or broken parts, stripped threads, or
evidence of exposure to heat.
IMPORTANT
Follow the operating instructions provided by
the heating appliance manufacturer. The
